. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
to get back some of that vote. in california republicans have created something called grow elect. it is a new political action committee dedicated to identifying and cultivating latino candidates ranging from school board elections to maral campaigns. >> and the republicans are hoping for? >> to get back in theic politic game. just last week helped elect three latinos, races that were small, city council types. for the three winners it is the first time to experience support from the republican party. look for this group, grow elect to take on a more prominent role next year. if they do the democrats might find themselves with reenergized competition. >>> spanning generations. still ahead here at six, the role grandfathers may play in determining your child's autism risk. >>> should you have to tell your boss how much you weigh? >>> and i'm janelle wang. president obama and israel show a united front speaking of pressing issues. the latest in world tonight. >>> criticized for the policy on homosexuals and criticized for its survey the boy scouts of america raising more eyebrows.
. and it wasn't so long as throughout the 2012 election cycle they spent a lot of time insulting black voters, insulting hispanic voters and ignoring asian voters. this is going to be an ongoing challenge for them if they want to woo minority voters because people don't forget. and i doesn't think they fully understand just how much damage was done through that election cycle with the rhetoric that was used. it was not lost on us when they made a point about obama voters being lazy, wanting free things from the government. those comments were not lost on our communities. the other issue the republican party has and what they need to address is their unwillingness to call out racism when it occurs in their party. when democrats, there was a situation recently where a liberal group made a comment about senator mcconnell's wife and progressives were very quick to condemn those statements because they had racial overtones. the republicans have got to be willing when people in their party say something sexist or racist to condemn it and push those type of people out of the party. and they seem unw
. >> neil: and the glad stuff -- >> after the 2012 election. now the president said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. you won't be able to find your doctor because 50% of doctors are giving up their independent practice. the laws creates creates so many disincentives so many panels from a door who want to have a private practice. premiums are going up because the law requires insurance companies to cover more, to cover people with serious preexisting illnesses. >> neil: apparently a loot more than was forecast the way this thing was built. >> oh, yes. young people who were primary supporters of president obama are going to see 100% premium increases. >> neil: what is the $63 fee about? >> that's something that is hitting employers. a lot of surprises for employers. >> neil: a identify they have not to pay. >> just rolls out in november. among the thousands of new regulation. employers are frantic because they're coming so late in the game. le. >> neil: be part of the plan or not. but it's a fee -- >> for every employee -- every dependent who is covered with insurance. third
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
. bibi netanyahu would not an election by the skin of his teeth. he only just managed to put together a coalition. his right wing partners would not go along, i suspect work the complete freeze on settlements. on the palestinian side, they're showing there might be some little wiggle room. they might agree not to call for as they say, open freeze on settlements. a nudge and a wink. that's what the president is doing and saying, look. don't stay so far away from each other that you cannot even listen to each other anymore. just try and get a little closer. be practical. find the political language that will satisfy your own bases but get the peace deal done. >> the nudge and the wink. i like that. mr. richardson, one final question. let's look ahead to tomorrow when the president will be traveling to jordan. president obama has been very care wfl the u.s. involvement in syria but jordan is of course the country dealing with the syrian refugee crisis. more than 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan so far. what do you expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting with king abdullah? >> well, k
in zimbabwe have voted for change. election officials say about 95% of voters in last saturday's referendum want to limit the powers of any future president. >> i now announce that the draft resolution is declared to have been adopted by the people of zimbabwe as the constitution of zimbabwe. >> under the new rules all future presidents will be limited to two, five-year terms in office. the parliament will also have more say over the country's governance. the referendum took place after neighboring countries put pressure on zimbabwe where 89-year-old robert mugabe has held the presidency for more than 30 years. the approval paves the way for a presidential election as early as july. mugabe is likely to run against his coalition partner and prime minister morgan vangir >>> people in japan are looking back at a painful period in their history. on wednesday, they marked the 18th anniversary of the attack on tokyo's subway system. in 1995, members of the aum shinrikyo cult carried out an attack. subway officials organized a memorial at one of the stations the cult targeted. they prayed at 8:00

other than death. or is there another way out? jessica williams has more. >> with the divisive election behind us america's citizens are moving past partisan talking points to engage in a reasonable discussion of -- >> i hate the united states government. >> really? >> yes ma'am. >> why? >> because they are trying to oppress us. the united states government is retiring. >> right, okay. >> so apparently in texas people like larry and lynn are tired of living under the jackboot of a democratically elected government hell bent on stripping them of freedoms they hold dear. >> one of the things that texas is loves, you can still talk -- allows, you can still talk on the cell phone and text while you are driving. >> really? >> yes, that's how much freedom texans want to keep. >> and if we can't even decide on things like that, they are huge tyrants. >> jon: what does the word tyrant mean to you as opposed to what it means to everybody else. >> tyrant like hitler or lincoln who murders the people for their own political gain. >> you think lincoln is tyrant? >> yes, ma'am. >> it's not something
in 100 years when he was elected 10 years ago and he has remained an effective and visionary leader for everyone. mayor newsom gained worldwide recognition when he granted marriage licenses to same sex couples in 2004. we all remember those moving pictures of smiling couples on the steps of city hall, some of them their children watching on. his actions in 2004 thrust this civil rights issue into the national spotlight and cemented his reputation as a fearless public officials who does what he thinks is right. under mayor newsom's energetic leadership the economy grew and the city became an economic center for biotech and clean tech. gach newsom has been a trail blaitzer on combating homelessness and protecting the government. in 2007 he was re-elected as mayor with more than 70 percent of the vote, which is unheard of. please welcome our lieutenant governor, gavin newsom. >> my role was to get tom to speak. i'm just going to jump in because i want to keep you all on time. you've got an agenda packet and i'm going to be held accountable if you don't meet it. roslyn, let's pic
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me to know that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you -- you're doing a magazine exchange, in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado. where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in. and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly, on the surface, it is. but,
to "the new york times," the newly elected pontiff privately supported civil unions for gay couples when the archbishop of buenos aires in 2010. then he publicly opposed gay marriage and went against the government of argentina in so doing. but his willingness to accept ip as compromise if true offers insight into how he might change the church. "outfront" tonight, father edward beck, host of "the sunday mass," good to see you again. we talked about this getting ready for when we were -- what was going to be the next pope. so senior vatican receives say we have no comment on this. we're not going to say whether he supported civil unions for gay couples or not. what's your take? >> listen, it wasn't so private, there was a bishop's meeting in 2010 of all of the bishops in argentina. he was the head of the bishop's conference. it looked like same sex marriage was going to pass in argentina. so as a compromise, he said we want to come out for human rights. let's support same sex civil union. for the first time in six years they voted him down. he got everything else through as head of that
that was thoroughly rejected by the american people last election. mitt roll any and paul ryan talked about the approach to the budget issues, the people in this country clearly said they didn't want to go in that direction. yesterday there was a vote on the house floor for that, unfortunately it passed with a lot of tea party members in the house. at the same time we still have not gotten a vote on common sense gun safety measures, the most obvious one being universal background checks, and as you said, speaker boehner had to walk back a proposal which called for the common-sense solution, because the tea party and others apparently bombarded his office when he made sense on this issue. so, look, the answer to this will require the american people to remain engaged and to demand that the victims in newtown, the victims in aurora, the victims of other mass shootings, and those who die every day from gun violence, that they get a vote in the house of representatives. >> but here's the problem, congressman. the polls is on the side of these common-sense measures. 57% support an assault weapon
that the american people went to the polls of in support of in the election just a few months ago. it takes the kind of truly balanced approach that families across our country strongly support, and i believe it is a strong and responsible vision for building a foundation for growth and restoring the promise of american opportunity. now, i spoke at length last night about our budget. it's built on three principles. number one, we have got to protect our fragile economic recovery, create jobs and invest in our long-term growth. this is something that every family in america is asking us to focus on. number two, we need to tackle our deficit and debt fairly and responsibly. as democrats, we understand that is a responsibility that we bear today and we do it in this budget. and number three, we need to keep the promises we made as a nation to our seniors and our families and our communities. many who have struggled so much over the last few years and are counting on us to be there for them again now. mr. president, we'll be hearing a lot more about all these principles today and we're going to discuss
if you have an election like 2012 where there were a lot of things that made you feel like republicans could have won. you have the president who was not very popular. you have very high on a plug. you have a very weak economy. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession in come on it went down $5,000 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won freckly at a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. allowed obamaple to define romney. romney thether than fighting romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say what did we do wrong. the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape certainly -- i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republi
them to be free and freely elect and we're not happy-- >> and so we're going to give them-- >> we're not happy with the palestinian's decision to elect hamas, but we want those people to have freedom and them to decide. >> we're giving terrorists money. colonel west, why would we give terrorists money? >> well, i don't think we should be giving terrorists money. i think that that is going back to a chamberlain type of foreign policy appeasement. and originally whsecretary of state kerry went to egypt, wanted to meet with him and he refused to and it was not covered, you had protests in the united states of america, in egypt for supporting terrorists and the same in the west bank, leslie referred to, they're defacing pictures of president obama, throwing shoes at it and believe that the supposed to be quote, unquote insinuated in cairo have been turned back again. and when you talk about a two-state solution, you have to have a willing peace partner on the other side and not just that there's not really a two-state. you're talking potentially three-state solution because hamas and
democratic senators out for re-election from very difficult states, who that are gun-oriented. he will allow dianne feinstein to have amendment on both the assault weapons bans and on the clips. assault weapons been a gives -- assault weapon ban gives everyone a chance to vote on. it but the clips i bet they pass. >> dana: for those who support the second amendment and don't want to see the rights eroded because of a ill, mentally disturbed person who committed murder. the background check bill is bad. what are you hearing? >> eric: for that portion of gun control the other part is let's crack down on illegal traffics in place. i don't think either one of the clips and the assault weapons ban will pass. i predicted harry reid wouldn't get it on a bill on the senate floor. he has to raise his hand and he is last person to vote on that. there are 11 senators that don't want to jeopardize that. he would lose. he would lose either one of those. >> bob: he would lose on clips. >> it'd make a wager that both amendment fail. >> greg: i hate to use the phrase bigger story, because i banned that. thi
officials will consider where they deserve a pay raise. the commission cut elected officials' salaries by 5% during the recession. a survey find that they get the highest base pay in america. six others were paid more atlanta year than brown. they meet every year to determine if any changes should be made to the salaries of the california elected officials >>> the cia may be getting out of the drone business they may no long be involved in drones to carry out attacks against terrorists. the drone program is being shifted to the defense department. the idea is to toughen criteria for drone strikes. >>> president obama continues his middle east trip as reported from the washington d.c. news room. president obama just spoke along palestinian leaders >>> president obama there with the palestinian president and that he is very serious about ending division with israel. he is meeting with other leaders today with the goal of restarting peace talks with israel. expectations are still low for any type of breakthrough. president obama wants to hear from both sides and met yesterday with israel's pre
be helpful in this role is that i served as an elected school board member in new haven unified school district for two terms including serving as the president. i was the elected auditor at the city of alameda. i served on the citizens oversight committee and the citizens watchdog committee of the alameda county transportation commission. again, overseeing this exact kind of situation of bond funding and grant funding. i served as the president of the [speaker not understood] community college foundation. i served as the treasurer of the oakland chamber of commerce, many other boards and commissions. and, so, i feel like i could step into this position and play a helpful role quickly. i certainly understand the exact purpose of the committee related to assuring that the dollars are spent in accordance with the agreement set up with the community when they voted to approve the bond. so, assuring the public trust, assuring that new bonds can be approved when the city decides to go back and ask for more bond from the community and assuring that the bond rating of the city remains strong.
times to repeal a ban appeal obamacare. on election night they lost that. in 2010, get ready for this. the obama administration has been so straightforward and honest. nancy pelosi, harry reid, they have been honest people of public service. the cost of obamacare is now, that was just the early estimate. it had moved up to $1.1 billion. did i say billion? trillion dollars. $1.2 trillion. >> look at this, quite interesting adjustments. $1.1 trillion. than $1.2 trillion. well, the current estimate is $1.3 billion. the pattern will continue. twenty-one new taxes. twenty-one new taxes that will amount to $675 billion. this is getting expensive. among the most controversial, 2.6% tax. another $43,000. house republicans voted last summer to repeal this that they had installed it in the senate. senator orrin hatch renew the effort today. he introduced a bipartisan amendment with nine democratic cosponsors to roll back that medical device attacks. so what about presidentspromised to cut health care insurance premiums? $2500 per family. one study commission that obamacare will increase the cos
and not particularly policy oriented, policy for the elected people. the good government is something that i think we all feel strongly about. city has had some bad experiences with bonds back in just before i was on the grand jury, we had the problem with the school bonds and not -- i think some dissatisfaction with library bonds. we've got a huge bunch of bonds coming up, several hundred million dollars of bonds. this is kind of a management principle that is pretty important as well as transparency which had been mentioned. in the art of war, you don't want people that solve problems, you want people that prevent problems. so, you need to be thinking profoundly ahead of time and making sure the process is working properly. that's kind of a business philosophy that was important. so, i think it's relevant here that with hundreds of millions of dollars of bonds coming up, that we do them properly and not have problems after the fact. i appreciate the consideration and thank you very much for the work you do. >> thank you. any questions? seeing none, thank you very much. and our last applicant is jon
